Antibiotics, Bacteria, and Antibiotic Resistance Genes: Aerial Transport from Cattle Feed Yards via Particulate Matter”

This study published in the online journal Environmental Health Perspectives

Was designed “to determine the extent to which antibiotics, antibiotic resistance genes (ARG), and ruminant-associated microbes are aerially dispersed via particulate matter (PM) derived from large scale beef cattle feed yards.” It was found that wind dispersed particulate matter from feed yards does contain these contaminants.
